The Parameter Properties dialogThe Parameter Properties dialog


This dialog allows you to specify the properties of a parameter when attached at the project or variant level. Parameters can be used to provide additional design information. Project-level parameters, for example, can be used in global fashion as the source for special string parametric data to be added to schematic sheets and/or the PCB document - the latter of which does not support localized parameters.


The Parameter Properties dialog can be accessed in the following ways:


  • Name - use this field to give the parameter a meaningful name reflective of its purpose.
  • Value - use this field to give the parameter its value.
